Announcement and Call for Papers INFORMATION RETRIEVAL AND INFORMATION MINING Session within the 10th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, HCI International 2003, June 22-27, 2003, Crete, Greece Scope of the session -------------------- The continual growth of digital libraries (such as the World Wide Web) makes electronic documents the largest source of potential nuggets of information that researchers and decision-makers have ever had. Despite the sophisticated information retrieval systems that can be used, the range of information is so vast that finding the right place to look takes more time than a user has available. Moreover, information access (i.e. retrieving the documents that contain the relevant raw information) is generally not the main goal of the user. The user is generally instead interested in more advanced information such as unknown pieces of information and relationships within information (generally termed knowledge) that have to be extracted from the raw information. On the Web, a wide range of tools exists to be applied, but despite their claims, most them focus on information access rather than helping in the discovery of information and knowledge. The scope of the workshop is to promote discussion and interaction among those whose research interests are in data/text mining and information retrieval. The workshop aims at being a forum for the presentation of both theory and application results on the combination of information mining linked to information retrieval and global information visualization. Topics of interest ------------------ The topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Text mining framework * Automatic source selection * Distributed data, XML, RMI and/or CORBA * Document homogenization * Text cleaning and summarizing * Information extraction * Information / text warehousing * Information / text mining techniques * Information visualization / visualization of knowledge * Knowledge management * Ontologies and IR (automatic building, use) Objectives of the session -------------------------- The session aims to bring together a cross-disciplinary core of participants to address the technical and business issues of information mining and information retrieval by future information and learning providing systems. It seeks to promote discussion and interaction between researchers, technology experts, digital content providers, as well as e-business companies and software developers. The session can provide an excellent opportunity to initiate further common activities within the 6th Framework Programme. Submission ---------- Submissions (position papers of 5 pages long) should be made by e-mail to mothe_(on)_irit.fr (in both Acrobat PDF and Microsoft Word format) by 12 febuary 2003. Authors should follow the instructions provided at http://www .hcii2003.gr/files/guidelines/formatting.doc) If there is sufficient interest among the participants, an edited volume of the ISI journal (Hermès Edition) will be published after the workshop.
